The Green and the Blue

Album: Life In A Beautiful Light (2012)

Songfacts®:

  • Lifelong Rangers supporter MacDonald wrote this song about the rivalry between the two Glasgow football clubs. "I love Glasgow," she told The Daily Record. "People often think of the rivalry between Celtic and Rangers and I wanted to write about that, because it is a big part of people's lives. The bad side of the rivalry is awful and I don't agree with all that, but the rivalry means so much to so many people and can also be a good thing."
